A cat in a tree? Better call the fire brigade

This bobcat postcard, published in 1939 by the National Wildlife Publishing Corporation of New York, is “Subject 1” in their “Wildlife Post Card Series”. Unfortunately, I’ve never seen Subjects 2 and up. Note the one-cent stampbox, and the blanks for name, address and city — no state required, apparently, and certainly no ZIP code back then.

The bobcat is pleased to be a part of Evelyn’s 5th “Festival of Postcards”, this one featuring quadrupeds, at her A Canadian Family postcard and genealogy blog — mostly on the off-chance that it’ll run into something tasty.
